In this study, some improving methods of gas turbine cogeneration cycles are applied on a simple cogeneration cycle. These methods are preheating air, preheating air and fuel, inlet air cooling by using evaporative cooling and absorption cooling. These cogeneration systems are evaluated with respect to energy efficiency (energy utilization factor), exergetic efficiency, electric and heat power, electric-heat energy rate, artificial thermal efficiency and fuel energy saving ratio and are compared with each other. In these analyses, the thermodynamic parameters such as compressing ratio, air and fuel mass ratio and compressor inlet temperatures of the cycles are Used: It is concluded that these parameters can be listed from most effective to least effective as air fuel ratio, pressure ratio and compressor inlet temperature. It is also concluded that the most efficient cycle is found to be the air-fuel preheated cycle for obtaining more electric power and less heat power, and the simple cycle is the most suitable one for obtaining more heat power and less electric power.
